Where was the Governor? (0.00 / 0)
Dannel Malloy is a strong supporter of paid sick days.

"There are certain basic rights that should be afforded to any working person in Connecticut, and paid sick leave is certainly among them," said Malloy.  "It's wrong that we would penalize workers - salaried or on hourly wage - for being ill.  A person should not have to worry about missing a rent check or a mortgage payment because they catch the flu."

So I was surprised at his absence today.

But not to worry. I am sure we can expect a strong statement of support in the coming days. Right, Dan?

Perhaps, his paid sick day stance is next to his current Susinet position? (0.00 / 0)

I was really disappointed when Ned Lamont (0.00 / 0)
didn't support this issue. One bright point - it keeps our school nurses employed.

Thanks, CTBob!

Ned Lamont supported paid sick days at the national level (0.00 / 0)
but not at a state-by-state level because it gave businesses CT may try to attract an incentive not to set up shop here if CT had paid sick days but other states did not.  A national level paid sick day policy would ensure a level playing field for all states.

FYI, my current job does not have paid sick days, paid vacation days or paid holidays (4.00 / 1)
I only get paid when I work.  The only decent work I could find so far as a computer programmer is a 3 month-at-a-time contract job with my old company.  I was laid off in 2008, along with many of my 45+ year old colleagues, and my tasks given to Indian contractors, who didn't follow the documentation I left behind.
